If you know the corresponding registry parameters, computer GPO pushing an HKCU\software\adobe\

Have to identify the appropriate marker.

The second part can be done using VBscript within a computer GPO that will run as a startup script.
Which scripting languages vbscript, powershell?

@joukiejouk: please see my reply to your other question on EE regarding the Adobe registry settings, that should address your first question.

As for renaming and copying files, you can do this with Group Policy Preferences by first copying the original file and giving the copied file another filename, then either delete the original file or overwrite it as required. The below Group Policy Preferences should be able to do what you want:


Configure the above settings in the following location in Group Policy:
Computer ConfigurationPreferencesWindows SettingsFiles
Apply this policy to the OU containing all the workstations you want the changes applied to.

Also make sure you untick the Archive box when creating the Files GPP as it gets ticked by default:
